Using Auto Join on a Candidate. In the default configuration, a Candi-
date's Auto Join parameter is set to "Yes", meaning that it will automatically
join a stack if the stack's Commander detects the Candidate and the Com-
mander's Auto Grab parameter is set to "Yes". You can disable Auto Join on a
Candidate if you want to prevent automatic joining in this case. There is also
the instance where a Candidate's Auto Join is disabled, for example, when a
Commander leaves a stack and its members automatically return to Candidate
status, or if you manually remove a Member from a stack. In this case, you
may want to reset Auto Join to "Yes".
[no] stack auto-join
ProCurve(config)# no stack auto-join
ProCurve(config)# stack auto-join
The new member did not have a System Name
configured prior to joining the stack, and so receives a
System Name composed of the stack name (assigned in
the Commander) with its SN number as a suffix.
